Les Cultures de chez nous

Les Cultures de chez nous

The adventure of Les Cultures de chez nous took off in 1979 in Sainte‑Brigitte‑des‑Saults, Quebec, thanks to Michelle Rajotte and Louis-Marie Jutras. At the time, they were secretaries and cartographers, respectively, and started farming part-time, growing garlic and asparagus. In 1981, Michelle and Louis-Marie left their jobs to become full-time farmers by buying 172 acres of land. That’s when leek growing began... and continues to this day, with the whole family in the business and over 80 employees year-round!
